I'm pretty sure you can add any ride date to the current calendar on the site. It is one of the options when you create an new topic. Or you can click on Calendar and then "Add New Event" button which is lower center.

OK, when I get some free time I will give it a try?

What part of the state are you from & where do you usually ride?

Agreed,

Thought it may be easier to have a separate calendar or chronological list for these member rides.

The easier it is, the more it will get used.

hello everyone, i'm fairly new here and been reading posts. This is an awesome forum with great people. This is why i love the sport, the trails, the mud, and the people you meet on the trails and in the mud,,lol..

I belong to a club and am an active member.. http://www.svtrailblazers.com/ which is a great club and i agree with having clubs to keep trails we have and to get new ones.

I also put on rides in the trevorton and st. clair area and like keeping it simple as well like an earlier post. Just post a ride and who shows up, shows up.

There's a website called everytrail http://www.everytrail.com/my_trips.php?user_id=175783 which is an awesome way to share gps tracks of previous rides, check out my home page and fell free to d/l any of the tracks

Really looking forward to meeting and riding with you!


If there's a trail I ride it..
If there is no trail I make one...

The ATV Safety Inst. hassome great info. on how to start an atv club. I used their info. to from a club in 1999 and our club is still going strong. We hold monthly meetings. We collect dues. We hold monthly rides. Have a annual club picnic and Christmas party. We have 4 officers who oversee all operations. If you can find a few people who are willing to devote their time to a club you will find that it will almost run itself in time. Our officers meet once a year and set up rides for the upcoming year and meeting agendas ect. We hold a raffle or 50/50 at each meeting and the proceeds go into a petty cash fund which we use to buy food for cooking on club rides. The rest of the funds go into a general fund wich support the our web site and other club expences. If your willing to put in the initial work it will pay off in no time. Plus you will meet people from all walks of life and make friendships that will last a lifetime.

The ATV Safety Inst. puts out a complete booklet on how to start an atv club. I used it back in 1999 to start our club and it served us well. We are now in our 12th year. Contact them for a cory.

You need to define the purpose/goals of the club. If the only purpose is to pick places to ride and meet, then there is no need for any money or structure. If you want the club to have a voice in PaOHV, promote safe riding, push for new public riding areas, or acquire property then you'll need structure and money. In my limited time riding ATVs, clubs that don't cost any money don't last long. Those that do cost $10-15/year last much longer. There must be a reason for that.

Probably like a lot of other fourm boards, Social media has taken over.

I really hate that trend. Trying to wade through the mess of a group or club trying to use FB as a home page is a pain.

I agree, a lot of junk on social media. I am old school, prefer the forum board because topics are arranged and orderly.
Our club uses a forum board for communication. It closed to the public though, mainly because of spammers in the past.

I would love to see this revived...

Social media has definitely eaten up these types of forums.

Let's do it...
